[Verse 1]
Honey, listen to that dreamy tune they’re playin’,
Won’t you tell me how on earth you keep from swayin’?
Umm! Umm!
Oh, that Mendelssohn Spring Song tune;
If you ever loved me show me now or never, Lord,
I wish they’d play that music on forever,
Umm! Umm!
Oh, that Mendelssohn tune. My honey,

[Chorus]
Love me to that ever lovin’ Spring Song melody,
Please me, honey, squeeze me to that Mendelssohn strain,
Kiss me like you would your mother,
One good kiss deserves another,
That’s the only music that was ever meant for me,
That tantalizin’, hypotizin’, mesmerizin’ Mendelssohn tune.

[Verse 2]
Don’t you stand there, honey, can’t you hear me sighin’?
Is you gwine to wait until I’m almost dyin’?
Umm! Umm!
Oh, that Mendelssohn Spring Song tune;
Get yourself acquainted with some real live wooin’,
Make some funny noises like there’s something doin’.
Umm! Umm!
Oh, that Mendelssohn tune. My honey,

[Chorus]
